Board of Directors

  • Mid Annandale Playcare is a registered charity (SC 03084) and is run by a Board of Directors, most of whom are parents/carers of children at the nursery – all are volunteers. We can have a maximum of 12 directors on our Board. The Board of Directors meet once a month and have an annual general meeting once a year. Meetings are usually held at the MAP on Thursday evenings. The Board also keeps in touch and communicates with the nursery management and each other by e-mail to resolve issues and make decisions.

    The Board is legally responsible for the nursery and they appoint the manager to manage the day to day running of the facility. The Board is currently chaired by Karen Beattie.

    We are always keen to welcome new parents/carers to the Board. If you are interested in becoming a Director, or would like to get involved in other nursery activities, please get in touch with nursery manager Cilla Hetherington or email the Board at directors@mapchildcare.co.uk. We would love to hear from you.
